Kitchen Plumbing Drainage Configuration

The piping under the kitchen sink seems to be less than effective. I’ve attached photos & would appreciate suggestions on how I can reconfigure. Thanks

arch not sure if it is your pictures or your drainage pipes are not sloping the right way. It appears as if your drain goes into the garbage disposal. You’d have to get that fixed for sure. Also, it looks like you are having some vent issues. Hard to see, but can you ty to tell us what the last component next to the wall is It does look like some kind of vent….

Sorry, I didn’t see that there was an actual reply. The drain comes out of the garbage disposal & attaches to the drain from the other sink. They drop into a P trap in the middle & out behind the wall, with a vent near the wall. The drain between the sink & the garbage disposal slopes to the right, which maybe the cause of some the the drainage problem, along with the hose from the dishwasher dropping below the garbage disposal. That’s why I’m wondering whether the pipe between the garbage disposal & the other sink need to be level or is the slope not a problem? Also, do I need to have the tube from the dishwasher stay above where it goes into the garbage disposal or does it not matter? Thanks

You got a lot of slope going back into the garbage disposal etc. anytime your left sink drains it will first run into the garbage disposal etc. You do want to at least get it somewhat level. This appears to be a bit extreme. Your P-trap also looks like it is almost laying sideways. I recognize it's a pain under the sink and really tight with the garbage disposal (had the same issues under my sink:-) but you will have drain issues the way it runs right now.
